adidas by Raf Simons

Raf Simons’ lasting love of sneakers is no secret – and underscores the design icon’s ongoing work for sports brand Adidas, a collaboration going strong since 2014. His personal object of desire: the iconic Stan Smith low-top. For Adidas, Simons decided to appropriate and rework the sportswear classic, giving it a characteristic, minimalist look spliced with unusual, 1980s inspired colourways. His trademark spin: a perforated “R” that replaces the label’s legendary three stripes.
